From fresh-faced country boy with a funny name, to leathery legend chiseled into Giants history, Buster Posey shared his ascent into baseball lore with San Francisco fans thirsting for the game’s ultimate prize after five decades of futility.
Posey officially retired from baseball Thursday, awaiting only the formal vote to validate a Hall of Fame career behind and at the plate.
Since 2011, SFBay photojournalists have captured Posey in action at Oracle Park. From SFBay director of photography Scot Tucker, and photographers Godofredo Vasquez, Ali Thanawalla, Ching Wong, Aleah Fajardo and Brian Churchwell, SFBay presents “Buster Posey: A career in photos.”
